Ministry to impose stricter RES project ownership inspection

The energy ministry is preparing to enforce a stricter ownership inspection procedure for RES projects, following many property overlapping cases, to be included in a second round of measures intended to further simplify RES project licensing.

The ministry intends to include this second round of RES licensing simplification measures, including the stricter project ownership checks, to a draft bill covering energy storage matters, expected to be submitted to Parliament towards the end of the year following its presentation to the cabinet and public consultation.

The second round of measures for RES licensing simplification is expected to  include interventions at many stages of the overall procedure for swifter processing and outcomes.
